Great car from Canada

zoleco.ca


Bod is currently fine-tuning the current technologies of the prototype, whilst also looking into creating an advanced cylinder head configuration. This is all with the hope of building "production cars that will surpass the original proof of concept's energy conserving achievements" he says.

In the meantime, he is also considering the possibility of selling a homebuilt kit for those that want a hands-on and cost-effective way of acquiring their very own

Nice find! I never heard of this prototype before. Personally I like the design a lot except for the two little wings at the back. I have looked over the site and could not find any mention on what powers it, any ideas? (May be because I am too tired right now)

It belongs in the Unicorn Corral unless Zoltar actually does something besides make sparks with that grinder the next time he picks it up.

Hey, Frank, maybe the title should've been, "Grate car from Canada," meaning it's purpose is to keep the Uni-Corns contained in their corral?

I truly find it sad that some people find the time to freely bash an ongoing project. At least the owner of this vehicle is trying to innovate in his own way and that is commendable.
